Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-95) Should our web sites have an explicit "Terms of Use"?
Date Thu, 21 Jul 2011 22:53:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-95?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13069268#comment-13069268

Shane Curcuru commented on LEGAL-95:

Yes, we should define and clearly publish a license and any basic terms of use on our main
apache.org website.  We should also document our expectations of projects in this regard.

I think requiring AL for project websites is appropriate.  It would be great if we had a Maven
and Forrest volunteer to document how to apply this to generated sites using those tools.

Note that a number of projects do/have had terms of use statements, IIRC.  There's been discussion
about terms of use when project websites use Google tracking IDs.

> I was recently asked about the terms of use/license of an ASF project's web site. I responded
that the content was AL v2, but then spent a few seconds trying to provide proof of that statement.
I wasn't successful... The content was copyright Apache Software Foundation, but there was
no indication of the license for the content. I sampled a few projects and found varying results:
> Some sites were copyright the ASF and licensed under AL v2 (including www.apache.org).
Other sites were simply copyright the ASF. Other sites had no copyright or license statement
at all.
> Do we have guidelines describing what's expected/required of our projects? Should we
set some guidelines?
